Rangers legend Nacho Novo has surprised bottle attack victim Kraig Mackay with a phone call offering him one of his shirts from his days at Ibrox.

The 11-year-old needed seven stitches to a cut on his head after a bottle was flung across the road as he walked to Hampden for the Old Firm game on Sunday.

Rangers face St Johnstone in the Premiership tomorrow night and Kraig will lead Mark Warburton’s side out ahead of the game before taking up a 
seat in the Director’s Box.

Nacho Novo- who is Kraig's favourite player- called the youngster to congratulate him on becoming a mascot for the night, and offered to take the youngster out for pizza as well as gifting him one of his Rangers shirts.

The attack on the youngster shocked Scotland when pictures of his bloodied head were shared on social media.

Chief Superintendent Brian McInulty said: “Let’s be clear – this was an attack on a young boy who could possibly be left with a scar. 

“This is abhorrent, and the person or persons responsible need to be caught.

“A football game is not an excuse for violence, ever. My detective officers are continuing inquiries into the incident, and I would re-iterate their appeals for information.”
